SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Colorado Rockies‘ bats went silent at the worst possible time.Madison Bumgarner pitched six strong innings Clayton Kershaw Jersey , and Austin Slater and Hunter Pence drove in runs as the San Francisco Giants beat Colorado 3-0 Saturday night and knocked the Rockies out of first place in the National League West.The Rockies slipped a half-game behind the Dodgers in the division. Los Angeles beat St. Louis 17-4 Saturday.The Giants shut out Colorado for the second straight game after starting the month of September with 11 straight losses, their worst winless stretch since moving to San Francisco.“Obviously you never want to get shut-out, especially not two games in a row,” Rockies shortstop Trevor Story said. “There’s some (frustration), a little bit, but definitely no panic.”The Rockies lost for the sixth time in seven games at AT&T Park. They’ve been shut-out two straight games 15 times in franchise history, 13 times by the same team.The Rockies were 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position. They’ve been held scoreless for 19 straight innings, dating to Thursday’s game against Arizona.“You look at the 140-plus games, most of those games have gone our way where we win those tight ones,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. “With tonight’s game, you’re talking about a big game pitcher who pitched very well and made a couple of pitches to our guys when we couldn’t get that big hit.”Bumgarner (6-6) struck out two, walked one and hit a batter in winning for the second time in eight starts. He extended his consecutive scoreless innings streak at home to 20.Bumgarner left the game with tightness on his side, which he felt during his last at-bat in the fourth, manager Bruce Bochy said.Bumgarner is expected to make his next start.“He was being honest and being smart,” Bochy said. “He said ‘Could I keep going? Yes. Do I feel it? Yes.'”Relievers Tony Watson , Mark Melancon and Will Smith combined for three innings of two-hit ball for the Giants. Smith worked the ninth for his 12th save.“What a great job by this staff in back-to-back games against a good hitting lineup,” Bochy said. “Back-to-back shutouts are pretty impressive by this staff.”The Giants were held to three runs or fewer in 16 of their last 18 games and 10th straight, the team’s longest such streak since 2002, when they went 11 in a row. (Aug. 14-18).Slater drove in a run with an infield grounder, and Pence had an RBI single in a two-run second inning off Rockies starter German Marquez (12-10).Bumgarner, who doubled leading off the third, scored the Giants’ third run on a wild pitch.Marquez gave up three runs on seven hits, a walk and hit two batters.MARQ OF CONSISTENCYMarquez extended his streak of consecutive quality starts (at least six innings pitched, three or fewer earned runs) to 10. The streak is the Rockies’ longest since Ubaldo Jimenez opened 2010 with a franchise record 14 consecutive quality starts.A FIRSTThe Rockies started the day atop the NL West with a half-game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers. They were alone in first place at the latest point of any season since 1995 (Sept. 26).WARNINGHome plate umpire Ramon DeJesus immediately warned both benches after Marquez hit Evan Longoria in the upper back with runners at second and third and one out in the third, an inning after Bumgarner hit D.J. LaMahieu.Marquez hit Slater in the head with a 78 mph curveball in the bottom of the sixth, but no action was taken.TRAINER’S ROOMGiants: 1B Brandon Belt (right knee soreness) had an MRI on Saturday. His playing status is day-to-day, Bochy said. . C Aramis Garcia has been taking ground balls at first and could see playing time there, Bochy said. Garcia will catch Sunday’s game.UP NEXTRockies RHP Antonio Senzatela (4-6, 5.01 ERA) is winless in his last six starts and hasn’t won on the road since April 27 (in relief). RHP Derek Rodrigues (6-3, 2.35) is among two pitchers in MLB history who have pitched at least six innings and given up two or fewer runs in 13 of their first 16 career starts. Former Montreal Expos pitcher Steve Rogers is the other. SAN DIEGO (AP) — Padres rookie right-hander Brett Kennedy wasn’t dominating Sandy Koufax Jersey , just effective.“He was missing barrels,” San Diego manager Andy Green said. “There was a lot of soft contact.”Kennedy pitched six strong innings, and Franmil Reyes, Luis Urias and Wil Myers all homered to lead the Padres to a 7-0 win over the Colorado Rockies on Friday night.Kennedy (1-2) had his longest outing in six career starts, giving up four hits, two walks and hitting a batter. He struck out two as the Padres won their season-high fourth straight game while starting rookies in each of the wins.“Definitely a great feeling and definitely nice that we played great, put up a lot of runs and played some great defense,” Kennedy said. “When you can put together a game like that and get your first win, it’s a great feeling.”Reyes, who had a walk-off shot in the 13th inning Thursday night, went deep in the fourth inning. Urias added his first career homer, a two-run blast, in the five-run eighth, which preceded Myers’ long fly.“It feels great,” Urias said. “I’m so happy that I got my first homer.”With the loss the Rockies fell into third place in the NL West , but remained 1 1/2 games behind the division-leading Diamondbacks.The Padres’ bullpen, which allowed one earned run in seven innings of relief Thursday, was keen once again. Matt Stahm and Phil Maton pitched one inning each and Rowan Wick, making his major league debut, got the final three outs.Colorado didn’t have multiple baserunners aboard until the sixth inning. The Rockies were struggling so bad they asked Nolan Arenado, who has more RBIs (545) than any player since 2014 and 91 this year, to sacrifice bunt when Carlos Gonazalez opened the sixth with a walk.Arenado advanced Gonzalez to second, but he was stranded. Galvis snagged Trevor Story’s liner and David Dahl struck out.“We definitely feel like we’re better than what we’ve been doing,” Story said. “We just really had that big hit with runners on.”Kennedy was on his game.“I tried not to do too much,” said Kennedy, a Padres 11th round pick in 2015. “In the first inning I just said I’m going to make pitches and whatever happens, happens. Today it felt like the first day I was pounding the strike zone and getting some bad swings.”Kennedy doesn’t have a power arm, instead relying on location with his curveball and slider to upset batters’ timing.“He got inside enough to keep them honest,” Green said.The Rockies have gone 16 straight innings in the series without scoring against the Padres.“The last two nights we haven’t done it,” Colorado manager Bud Black said. “I think the only way that we can look at is the big picture. We’re in a pennant race Hyun-Jin Ryu Jersey , we’ve had two rough nights offensively, we’ve pitched well until the eighth inning.”Antonio Senzatela (4-5) pitched six innings and gave up a run and four hits.Galvis provided an additional cushion in the seventh when he drove in Austin Hedges with an RBI single off reliever Seunghwan Oh. Hedges reached on a one-out double.Reyes, who is only four homers off Hunter Renfroe’s team-high 17, struck again with a laser to left-center in the fourth inning. Senzatela presented a center-cut, 93 mph fastball and Reyes, a call-up from Triple-A El Paso on Aug. 4, didn’t let the mistake get by. It extended the rookie outfielder’s hitting streak to six games and he has gone deep in nine of his last 10 contests. Over that span he has four homers and a double.TRAINER’S ROOMPadres: RHP Bryan Mitchell (elbow) will come off the disabled list and get the start in Monday’s game at Arizona. Mitchell last pitched on June 6.UP NEXTRockies: RHP Jon Gray (10-7, 4.76) has seen Colorado win four of his five starts since returning from Triple-A Albuquerque on Aug. 5. Gray is 7-3 in 14 career starts against the Padres, which includes a 3-1 mark this year.Padres: LHP Robbie Erlin (3-4, 3.69) will make his seventh appearance and second start against the Rockies this year in the third contest of the four-game series. He’s pitched to a 2.61 ERA with the Rockies hitting just .205 against him. He went five innings, allowing three runs and five hits at Colorado in a start on Aug. 21 for the win.
